Best explanation to understand and solve the time and distance problems

Time, speed and distance play a major role in aptitude exams because, in this world the most essential three parts is time, speed and distance.

As this parts forms an integral part of every competitive exam. So, you cannot afford to miss this topic. In this article will furnish you to solve all the time and distance mistrust.  

Are you preparing for any competitive bank exams? Like SBI clerk, SSC CGL, IBPS PO, RRB. OK..Now it’s time for yours to obtain your knowledge.

In this article we presented some basic concepts of time and distance definition, important formula, time and distance aptitude easy tricks, time and distance average speed problems with solutions, and solve problems for SBI Clerk. 

Definition of time and distance

Speed is a measure of how quickly an object moves from one place to another.

It is equal to the distance traveled divided by the time. It is possible to find any of these three values using the other two.

Important aptitude formula

1. This is a simple concept you can solve all the time and distance problem by using substituting the values in the formulas.

  1. Speed = ( distance / time )
  2. Time = (distance / speed ) 
  3. Distance = ( speed / time )

2. Km per hr to m per sec see conversion X km/ hr = ( X*5/18) m/sec.

3. M (sec to km) hr conversion X m/ sec = (x*18/5) km/hr

Few things to remember

  1. 1 km = 1000m
  2. 1 hr = 60 min
  3. 1 min = 60 sec
  4. 1 hr = 3600sec

For example,

Speed = 1km / hr = 1000m / 3600sec = 5/18  

Time and distance easy aptitude tricks

Time and distance has simple aptitude tricks, so people practice hard to get success in all these areas. Moreover, read the questions carefully and then mark the correct answer. 

  1. If the time taken is constant, the distance traveled is proportional to the speed, that is more the speed more distance is traveled in the same time.
  2. If the speed is constant, the distance traveled is proportional to the time taken, that is more the distance traveled more the time taken at the same speed.
  3. If the distance traveled is constant, the speed is inversely proportional to the time taken, that is more the speed, less the time taken for the same distance traveled.

Average problems with solutions

In this article we provide many formulas and easy tricks for problems on time and distance. Now, we enter into practical work so, use the exact formula for the problems to find the correct answers.
